Where do I say no pets or children in addition to the sitter?

Hi, I’m new here. I just listed my home and was surprised that the sitters told me they are coming with their own pets and children. Is this normal? Where do I say no pets/children in my listing? I didn’t know I had to specify. I just want a sitter or sitters if they are a couple.

You can add it to the text, either in the intro or “Home” description. You could say, for example. “sorry but my house is not suitable for more than 2 people (no children) and I can only consider those traveling without pets”

Welcome @PixieChloe
It’s important to include that in your introductory section to weed out those traveling with pets or children. If you eat, you can include a reason(dog doesn’t get along with other pets in the house, house isn’t childproof, etc), but it isn’t necessary.

You can add it into your listing wherever it makes sense. I don’t accept sitters with children either, and just added the following to the home & location section:

"We don’t feel comfortable hosting children, we don’t have children ourselves and would be too worried about their safety. If you have a friendly dog that you would like to bring, that can be discussed. "

@PixieChloe We list this in the “Responsibilities” section. We give each item its own line in order to catch the eye of a sitter doing a quick read. This is what’s in our listing:

"Do not bring other animals into our home.

This sit is not suitable for children. "

If they apply and say they’re bringing children and/or animals, we decline their application and in our message, cite this section in our listing.
